Acting Up with Alex Russell

Watch out for Alex Russell! He literally flew in from LA to shoot SMR & then back on a plane to visit family in Rockhampton. We were charmed.

What have you been working on? I just wrapped on a film in LA called Pacific Standard Time – the movie was shot in LA which is rare, so it was a novelty to sleep in my own bed while filming.

How did you begin acting? When was a kid I was a big attention seeker, and I was teased at school so one of my ways of coping was to make people laugh by acting like a ‘nut ball’, so I stated going to theatre & once I came into contact with that feeling I was addicted.

Did you study acting? I started in speech & drama, and then moved to musicals as a kid and then in my second year out of school I went to study at NIDA.
